Baby girls are
an extraordinary gift from the Gods. They are mini-mes of every stiletto-rockin’
mama on the planet, and we all know what that means. If only they made heels
for infants to go with that matching ensemble.
what? Now they do.
The company, Pee
Wee Pumps, wants to help young girls reach the fashionista stage by the time
they are out of diapers by offering high-end
infant crib shoes with collapsible heels for babies ages 0 to 6 months.
Okay, so maybe
they're not 4" heels precisely, but judging from the pictures, they are
pretty damn close and utterly ridiculous.
The shoes come
in a wide array of colors and patterns, including leopard and zebra print (for
when your newborn is feeling wild and free) and are currently on sale for the low,
low price of $9.99. For a full line-up, you can check out the brand's Instagram
page where they share outlandish photographs of babies dressed like grown-ass
to the shoes remain (fairly) positive on Instagram, the majority of
socialmedialites out there believe the company is sending an idiodic message to
society and commenters are not backing down.
Despite fueled comments from critics,
Pee Wee Pumps founder Michele Holbrook stands by her product. She says they are
more than a slipper" and that there is no danger to the baby's foot due to
the collapsible heel.
This may be true but come on: Would you let your baby run around in heels dressed
like a lady of the night; praying she doesn’t trip over a half-eaten Goldfish and
land—face down—in a pile of dirty laundry (even though she can't even walk)?
Face it: newborns are adorable and super fun to dress up. But heels? What is the point?
If you ask me, there is none. But what do I know—my kid won't even wear the corset we bought when she turned 9. #sarcasm
